ARMSTRONG'S 

across the continent 



In 1908 the Armstrong Cork Company 
built its first flooring plant at Lancaster, 
Pennsylvania, for the manufacture of lino- 
leum. Since that time Armstrong plants and 
products have spread across the continent 
to become a nation-wide business that serves 
consumers in every town and city in America. 

From the time the company entered the 
flooring field one of the primary concerns of 
the men producing Armstrong's Linoleum was 
to turn out a top-quality product. This de- 
sire, combined with the careful craftsman- 
ship and the pride that these men took in 
their work, had much to do with the public ac- 
ceptance of Armstrong Floors. Today, the 
company manufactures five difterent types of 
linoleum flooring to meet the needs of homes, 
stores, offices, and public buildings. 

By 1914 Armstrong began producing an- 
other resilient tile flooring, Linotile, a heavy 
duty tile whose principal market is in schools, 
hospitals, stores, and public buildings. 

Then in order to broaden the line with in- 
expensive floor coverings, Armstrong began to 



make felt-base rugs and piece goods in 1924 
and five years later bought its own felt mill 
at Fulton, New York. As a result Armstrong 
was able to develop types of felt especially 
suited to various flooring uses and equipment 
for manufacturing twelve-foot widths. 

By the end of 1931 the Lancaster plant had 
another product in its line, Asphalt Tile, and 
was soon engaged in research to increase its 
alkali resistance and color range. As the prod- 
uct was improved, its demand grew, eventu- 
ally bringing about the construction of another 
Asphalt Tile plant at South Gate, Cali- 
fornia. Through the years, demand again out- 
grew Armstrong's productive capacity, and 
recently two new Asphalt Tile plants were 
built, one at Jackson, Mississippi, the other at 
Kankakee, Illinois. 

In 1936 Armstrong acquired a rubber tile 
plant at South Braintree, Massachusetts, to 
help round out its steadily expanding floor 
covering line. A recent addition to this plant 
has increased production considerably. 

Armstrong entered the wall covering field 




FULTON, NEW YORK 



w'U!. .. i^JBM^iam^ 




KANKAKEE, lUINOIS 




in 1932 and first produced Linowall, 
a quality wall covering for residential 
and commercial use. By 1945 the com- 
pany was making Quaker Wall Cov- 
ering, a low-cost product for similar 
applications. Both products were 
started in the Lancaster plant which 
by this time had grown to huge size. 

An important factor still aiding the 
company's progress in the flooring 
field was the establishment, in 1921, 
of training facilities for linoleum and 
tile mechanics. As part of the im- 
provement of installation methods 
Armstrong pioneered the develop- 
ment of adhesives and other installa- 
tion materials and tools. 

Year by year Armstrong's plants 
have increased in number, as have 
the products made in these plants, 
until today, forty-one years after en- 
tering the flooring field, Armstrong 
offers a complete line of resilient 
floors and sundries ... all of which 
are manufactured to meet the high 
standards of quality for which Arm- 
strong's products are famous. 




NOTICE ON COLOR VALUES 

For color matching, actual samples of material should

permit exact duplication of color values of the goods. 







Armstrong's 

PLAIN 

LINOLEUM 



i mt^= :=--'^ 



ARMSTRONG'S PLAIN LINOLEUM 

Armstrong's Plain Linoleum is a type made in solid colors without design. In 
addition to its use as an allover floor covering, Armstrong's Plain Linoleum is also 
widely used for borders, Linostrips, and inset designs. It is made in two gauges: 
Heavy, on burlap backing, and Standard, on Armstrong's exclusive Armofelt. 



3. ALKALI RESISTANCE: Recent developments 
in pigments, especially in reds and blues, 
now enable all colors of Armstrong's Plain 
Linoleum to resist the fading and discoloring 
caused by the alkaline action of many soaps. 



2. SMOOTHNESS RESISTS DIRT: The pressure and the 
ironing action of the highly polished hot upper roll, 
which turns slower than the lower roll, give Arm- 
strong's Plain Linoleum its smooth easy-to-clean surface. 



1. BEAUTIFUL COLORS: Thorough 
blending in a succession of mixers 
of several types assures uniform 
coloring and unusually even tex- 
ture in Armstrong's Plain Lino- 
leum. These colors are carefully 
chosen for harmony with all other 
patterns in the Armstrong Line. 




4. LONG WEARING: As the loose mix is 
drawn between the rolls it is compressed 
into a dense sheet and keyed to the back- 
ing, giving Armstrong's Plain Linoleum 
density and toughness to resist hard wear. 



5. RESILIENCE: The natural resilience of 
the particles of linoleum mix is main- 
tained throughout manufacturing to make 
Armstrong's Plain Linoleum a quiet floor 
that is highly resistant to indentation. 



6. RIGID INSPECTION: Each ingredient is tested and 
checks are made at every step until Armstrong's Plain 
Linoleum reaches the end of the long maturing process. 
It must meet the highest standards of quality before 
it receives its lacquer and wax finish prior to shipment. 



LINOSTRIPS AND BORDER MATERIAL 

One inch and i/^" wide Linos trips are made in 
all Plain linoleum patterns. Border material in 
standard widths, 6", 9", and 12" and 20 to 33V2 
yards long, is available in Plain Black No. 27, 
Chocolate No. 46, Midnight Blue No. 30, Ruby 
No. 40, and Black Marbelle No. 021. In addition, 
border material in any color or gauge of Marbelle, 
Plain, and Jaspe can be furnished in special widths 
ranging from 3" to 3'-0" wide.

JASPE 

LINOLEUM 



^wwlll^!!!mlllll^^»ll^l^Bll^^^^^lll^wlmM^^^^ 



ARMSTRONG'S JASPE LINOLEUM 




Li 



Armstrong's Jaspe is a type of linoleum with a multi-tone grained appearance. It 
is made by much the same process as Armstrong s Plain Linoleum, but with 
blended shades and colors. Jaspe linoleum is offered in two gauges: Heavy Gauge, 
on burlap backing, and Armstrong's exclusive Standard Gauge, on Armofelt backing. 



1. BLENDED COLORS: To achieve the beau- 
tiful shadings in Armstrong's Jaspe each 
color of linoleum mix is put through three 
seporote mixing operations and then ac- 
curately blended. A wide color selection 
ranges from dark tones to pastel shades. 



3. UNIFORM GRAINING CONCEALS SEAMS: As the mix drops 
from the chute, it is evenly distributed over the backing to as- 
sure uniform graining to the edge of the linoleum. This makes 
seams in a floor of Armstrong's Jaspe almost invisible. 



2. ACCURATE GAUGE: The prepared mix 
is dropped onto the backing just before 
it passes between the huge pressing rolls. 
Precise control of mix and rolls assures 
the uniform gouge of Armstrong's Jaspe. 



\ 



I 




4. SMOOTHNESS: The enormous 
pressure of the highly polished 
rolls compresses the particles of 
mix info a perfectly smooth con- 
tinuous sheet. This extra smooth 
surface of Armstrong's Jaspe aids 
fine appearance and easy care. 



6. EXCLUSIVE THICKNESS: Standard Gauge Jaspe 
is offered only in the Armstrong Line. Advanced 
manufacturing techniques and special equipment 
make possible this exclusive Armstrong flooring. 



5. LONG WEAR: The linoleum mix is keyed by the 
heat ond pressure of the rolls to a strong backing. The 
mixing, pressing, and long slow baking that follows 
make Armstrong's Jaspe o tough, indentation resistant 
flooring with excellent wearing qualities. Before shipping 
the surface is sealed with lacquer and then waxed.

MARBELLE 

LINOLEUM 




iuiiuuuiiiMinHHtmmuHmuiMMimHi.iiN[ji]imiumiuiiuiaiiimHi m|ymj| 



ARMSTRONG'S MARBELLE LINOLEUM 

Armstrong's Marbelle is a type of linoleum that is characterized by an allover 
marbleized appearance. It is offered in three gauges. Heavy Gauge is made on a 
burlap backing, Standard Gauge on Armstrong's exclusive Armofelt backing, and 
Light Gauge on a saturated felt backing with the special Safety-Back feature. 



1, COLOR: Armstrong's Marbelle Is noted for its distinctive 
color. Different linoleum mixes of carefully harmonized 
shades and hues are rolled into a continuous sheet in 
which the different colors ore intermingled and blended. 



2. GRAINING: By cutting, turning, overlap- 
ping, and feeding the sheets into a second 
set of rolls, Armstrong achieves the distinctive 
"svi^irl-graining" of Armstrong's Marbelle. 




7. FACTORY FINISH: Before leaving the fac- 
tory, Armstrong's Marbelle receives a lacquer 
and wax finish which protects the surface 
against dirt and wear. 



3. DENSITY: Tremendous pressure and 
double rolling make Armstrong's Mar- 
belle unusually dense and tough. 




6. WEAR RESISTANCE: After 
the final pressing, Arm- 
strong's Marbelle is hung 
in festoons in "stoves" five 
stories high, where it is 
slowly baked and aged for 
maximum wear resistance. 



5. SMOOTH SURFACE: The polished steel face 
of the giant finishing roll gives Armstrong's 
Marbelle a smooth, glossy surface that brings 
out the beautiful graining of the material. 



4. KEYED BACKING: A special adhesive on the 
backing, combined with the heat and pressure 
of the finishing rolls, permanently bonds the 
Marbelle sheet to the backing material.

ARMSTRONG'S EMBOSSED INLAID LINOLEUM 

Armstrong's Embossed Inlaid Linoleum is an exclusive Armstrong product 
that has different elements of the design depressed slightly so that other 
portions stand out in relief. It is made in two gauges— Heavy, on burlap 
backing, and Standard Gauge on Armstrong's special Armofelt backing. 



1. WIDE COLOR RANGE: As many as thirty-eight colors may 
be used in a single design of Embossed Inlaid. The use of 
mottled colors creates unusually rich effects. Armstrong's Em- 
bossed Inlaid Linoleum patterns have long been famous 
for their wide color range and their subtle shading. 



2. DISTINCTIVE DESIGN: A finely granulated 
mix is sifted through stencils onto the back- 
ing material. The intricate stencil shapes re- 
produce every line of the artist's design and 
make possible the beautiful patterns avail- 
oble only in Armstrong's Embossed Inlaid. 



3. KEYED TO BACKING: An adhesive coat 
on the burlap or felt backing helps to bond 
the mix and backing securely together under 
the pressure and heat of the giant presses. 





4. DURABILITY: Under the repeated pressings, 
the granulated linoleum mix is formed into a 
dense, unified sheet. After the final pressing 
and long baking in the maturing stoves. Em- 
bossed Inlaid has the long-wearing quality 
for which Armstrong's Linoleum is known. 



5. STREAMLINE EMBOSSING: The top face of this 
press has an embossing plate which depresses 
ports of the design, creating a textured effect. 
This gives Armstrong's Embossed inlaid its dis- 
tinctive appearance. The unique streamlining of 
Armstrong's embossing assures ease of cleaning. 



6. TESTED QUALITY: During each day of the 
maturing process, samples ore taken from Arm- 
strong's Embossed Inlaid Linoleum. These are 
sctentificoHy tested to assure uniform qualities 
of wear-resistance, smoothness, and resilience.

A NEW EFFECT IN 
ARMSTRONG'S LINOLEUM 



Armstrong's Spatter Linoleum is an entirely new 
type of linoleum design in the Armstrong Line of 
Resilient Floors. It has been developed to meet the 
demand for a modern, practical resilient flooring that 
has the pleasant atmosphere of colonial decoration. 
In appearance, this striking new floor is much like the 
old-fashioned "spatter dash" floors, but in Spatter 
Linoleum the multi-color spot effect goes all the 
way through to the backing material. This means 
that the distinctive pattern will not wear off, but will 
last for the life of the linoleum. With its many dif- 
ferent colors. Spatter Linoleum is adaptable to many 
different decorating schemes. 

Spatter Linoleum is made by the molded inlaid 
process and is similar to Armstrong s Embossed In- 
laid Linoleum, with the exception of the embossing. 
This step is omitted, leaving the goods with a smooth, 
polished surface. (See page 52 for Armstrong's Em- 
bossed Inlaid Linoleum Manufacture.) 

Spatter Linoleum is offered in two patterns, both 
of which are available in Standard Gauge only. Its 
backing is Armstrong's exclusive Armofelt. This ex- 
tremely flexible material, made of fresh fiber felt, is 
impregnated with a clear resin saturant that does 
not mar light-colored woodwork during installation. 




The fresh, bright feeUng of this pattern is suggestive of old- 
fashioned Cape Cod homes and quaint colonial kitchens. The 
multi-colored dots on an ivory background make this pattern 
particularly suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. 
The random design makes it a practical, dirt-concealing floor. 
Color schemes: see suggestions 6, 12, 13, 19, pages 248-249.

HEAVY GAUGE 



*^ 



ARMSTRONG'S STRAIGHT LINE INLAID LINOLEUM 

Armstrong s Straight Line Inlaid is a type of linoleum featuring a variety 
of geometric designs which are distinguished by sharp, clean-cut edges. It 
is made in three thicknesses: Heavy Gauge, on burlap backing; Standard 
Gauge, on Armstrong's exclusive Armofelt backing; and Light Gauge, on a 
saturated felt backing which has Armstrong s special Safety-back feature. 



5. DIRT RESISTANCE: The mirror- 
like surface of the huge finishing 
roll gives Straight Line inlaid its 
polished smoothness. Finally the 
linoleum is baked for weeks and 
then the surface is sealed with 
clear lacquer and a coat of wax to 
further increase resistance to dirt. 



1. CLEAR-CUT DESIGN: The die rolls of this giant 
inlaying machine cut the individual elements of 
the pattern from as many as four diflferent pre- 
formed sheets of linoleum mix. The dies place 
each block with great accuracy on the burlap or 
felt backing to form the clear-cot designs which 
make Armstrong's Straight Line Inlaid so popular. 



2. COLOR AND GRAINING: 
Each preformed sheet of 
linoleum mix is either a 
solid color or a beautifully 
grained Marbelle or jospe 
effect. Armstrong's Straight 
Line Inlaids are noted 
for their harmonious colors. 




4. LONG WEAR: Tremendous pres- 
sure is applied to Armstrong's 
Straight Line Inlaid. This pressing 
not only bonds the elements of the 
pattern into a unified sheet of 
linoleum but also gives it a re- 
markable degree of density and 
toughness. The result is extra re- 
sistance to indentation and wear. 



3. KEY: Before it reaches the inlaying mach 
the burlap or felt backing receives a "tacky 
coating. This holds each die-cut piece of lin 
leum in exact position until the final pressin 
Then it keys each block securely to the backin

Size of Blocks-9"x9' 



N'ine-inch jaspe blocks in soft-toned autumn brown with subtle 
accents of taupe and beige offer unusual color interest to this at-

modem as well as more conventionally decorated interiors. Color

RESILIENT TILES 



Linotile • Cork Tile • Asphalt Tile • Jaspe Tile 



ARMSTRONG'S RESILIENT TILES 



Armstrong's wide range of resilient tiles 
has been designed to meet a great variety 
of flooring needs. Though each type of 
Armstrong's tile has distinctive character- 
istics, all are recognized for durability, per- 



manent resilience, and fine styling. Inno- 
vations such as Linotile in 1914 and, more 
recently, alkali-resistant light colors in as- 
phalt tile are typical of Armstrong s leader- 
ship in the field of resilient tile flooring. 



Armstrong's Linotile 

Linotile is recommended for hospitals, 
schools, and other institutions where a sani- 
tary, quiet, and comfortable floor is needed. 
Linotile's long-wearing qualities, and its 
unusual resistance to indentation, make it 
ideal for public buildings. Fine homes, ex- 
clusive shops, and executive offices benefit 
from the luxurious beauty and exceptional 
design possibilities of Armstrong's Linotile. 



Armstrong's Asphalt Tile 

The beauty of Armstrong's Asphalt Tile, 
as well as its low cost, has helped make it 
a popular flooring for homes and businesses. 
Because it may be installed over concrete 
in contact with the ground, it is widely 
used wherever the concrete subfloor is on 
or below grade. Armstrong's Greaseproof 
Asphalt Tile is ideal for kitchens and res- 
taurants and for various industrial areas. 



Armstrong's Cork Tile 

Armstrong's Cork Tile is particularly 
suited for libraries and other rooms where 
quiet is essential. It adds dignity to offices, 
reception rooms, and courtrooms. In resi- 
dential bedrooms and bathrooms the ex- 
cellent insulating qualities of a resilient 
cork tile floor help to provide exceptional 
warmth and comfort underfoot. Armstrong's 
Cork Tile is also used as a decorative wall 
covering and as a protective wainscoting 
for preventing accidents in gymnasiums. 



Armstrong's Jaspe Tile 

Armstrong's Jaspe Tile, with its rich 
colors and clean, uniform striations, may be 
used in almost any interior. It offers wide 
design possibilities, and while it gives the 
appearance of being an expensive custom 
floor, a jaspe tile installation is actually quite 
moderate in cost. Each Armstrong's Jaspe 
Tile color blends harmoniously with all 
types of residential and commercial decora- 
tive schemes. This handsome resilient floor 
can be installed easily and inexpensively. 




Linotile is a dense but resilient tile flooring 
made of oxidized linseed oil, resins, pigments, 
and fillers, bonded together by heat and 
pressure and matured by long baking. 

After very thorough mixing and blending, 
the mixture is passed through large steel rolls, 
which form it into sheets about three feet 
square. These sheets are turned and passed 
between a second pair of rolls, one hot and 
one cold, which give Linotile its distinctive 
swirl marbleization. While passing through a 
huge rotary press to improve surface smooth- 
ness, the sheets are fastened to a carrier for 
stoving purposes. The long battens of material 
are then baked for from one to two months, 
during which time Linotile matures and be- 
comes an unusually strong and resilient floor- 
ing, with outstanding indentation-resistance. 

After Linotile has matured, a light coat of 
clear lacquer is applied to seal its surface, and 
the carrier is stripped off the back. Individual 
tiles are then cut to the desired sizes, rang- 
ing from 2" to 12" squares and from 3'' x &' 
to 18" X 36" oblongs. A thickness of Vs" is 
maintained, and the color and marbleization 
go all the way through each tile. Throughout 
the manufacturing process, the greatest care 
is exercised to keep this Armstrong flooring 
product at the highest level of quafity.

Jet Black No. 101 



Alabaster No. 1 11 



Armstrong s Linotile is an exclusive resilient 
tile flooring which is beautiful, indentation- 
resistant, easy to maintain, and very dvirable. 

Available in a wide range of colors, with 
both light and dark shadings, Linotile is read- 
ily adaptable to custom-design floors. Because 
of its non-directional graining Linotile can be 
laid at random, reducing installation time. 
This graining also helps conceal footprints. 

This durable tile can withstand loads of 
200 lbs. per square inch, more than double 
the indentation resistance of most other re- 
silent floorings. It will not splinter or crumble, 
and if Linotile is damaged by some unusual 
accident, individual tiles can be replaced. 

The resiliency of Linotile means that foot- 
steps and other noises are effectively dead- 
ened and fatigue from standing is reduced.

Armstrong's Cork Tile is an ideal flooring 
where quiet, dignity, and comfort are desired. 

Cork is made up of millions of tiny, air-filled 
cells fitted compactly together. This cellular 
structure is the secret of cork's light weight, 
resilience, compressibility, toughness, high fric- 
tion properties, and its natural resistance to 
moisture. These characteristics help to make it 
a good flooring material. 

Armstrong's Cork Tile is recognized as the 
ideal floor for quietness and underfoot comfort. 
Footsteps on its surface are almost soundless. At 
the same time, this floor is long wearing, with 
excellent nonslip qualities. The rich brown tones 
of cork provide mellow coloring that is richly 
dignified and luxurious. 

Beveled or standard (straight-edged) units 
can be supphed. Beveled cork tile helps con- 
ceal the irregularities of the subfloor and elim- 
inates the sanding operation usually required to 
complete an installation of standard cork tile. 

Armstrong's Cork Tile can be installed over 
any type of suspended subfloor. It is not recom- 
mended for use over concrete in contact with 
the ground. Armstrong's Cork Tile is made in 
6" X 6", 6'' X 12'', 6'' X 18'', 6" x 36" 9" x 9" 
9" X 18", 12" X 18", 18" X 18", and 18" x 36'' 
sizes, in thicknesses of 5/16" and 1/2".

ARMSTRONG'S ASPHALT TILE 

Armstrong's Asphalt Tile is a resilient flooring made up chiefly of natm-al 
and synthetic asphaltic resins, fibers, and color pigments. It is made in solid 
and marbleized colors with Armstrong's exclusive swirl-graining. Armstrong's 
Asphalt Tile is manufactured in 9" x 9" tiles in two gauges, 1/8" and 3/16". 




1. BLENDED COLORS: Separate batches of inten- 
sively mixed ingredients are prepared for each 
color in a marbleized pattern. The batches of col- 
ored mix are then combined and fed between rolls. 
The sheet thus formed contains the harmoniously 
blended colors of Armstrong's Asphalt Tile. 



2. ALKALI RESISTANCE: Armstrong's Asphalt Tile is not affected by 
alkaline moisture. This mokes it ideal for use on or below grade. The 
colors in Armstrong's Asphalt Tile do not fade or change. 



3. TOUGHNESS AND FLEXIBILITY: Rolling the mix to 
form a sheet with a one-way graining and then 
folding the sheet and rolling it in the opposite di- 
rection give the two-way strength which mokes 
Armstrong's Tile so remarkably tough and flexible. 



■X^^ 





4. SWIRL GRAINING: After folding, turning, and rolling, 
the sheet is not only tougher but also has a swirl graining 
which goes all the way through the material. This grain- 
ing speeds installation and odds distinctive beauty. 



5. LONG WEAR: The durability of Armstrong's Asphalt 
Tile is due to the careful selection of ingredients which 
are mixed and formed into dense, weor-resistont tile. 



6. PRECISION CUT: A giant press dies out 
tile with clean-cut edges, square corners. 
This helps assure tight joints and perfectly 
straight seams in the finished floor design.

ing of wax, which is applied to the mirror-

Armstrong s Asphalt Tile is known as "The low-cost floor with 
the luxury look." Its rich, harmonious, swirl-grained colors, its 
extensive color range, its flexibility and toughness, and its pre- 
cision-cut square corners help to assure fine installations. Because 
it is not affected by alkahne moisture, Armstrong's Asphalt Tile 
may be used over concrete in direct contact with the ground. It 
may also be used over wood and metal suspended floors. 

Armstrong's Greaseproof Asphalt Tile resists the actions of 
grease and oil which are harmful to Standard Asphalt Tile. Ideal 
for kitchens, restaurants, and manufacturing areas where grease 
is a problem, Armstrong's Greaseproof Asphalt Tile is supphed 
in the five colors listed in parentheses below the illustrations.

Industrial Asphalt Tile 

Armstrong s Industrial Asphalt Tile is a low- 
cost, heavy-duty flooring developed for use in factory 
and warehouse areas which are subjected to con- 
stant industrial traffic. Its nonslip, nonsparking, and 
nondusting qualities are extremely desirable, and 
its nonreflecting finish prevents annoying glare. 

Despite high tensile strength and resistance to 
indentation equivalent to standard asphalt tile, 
Armstrong's Industrial Tile is light in weight and 
adds little to floor loads. This flooring material is 
moisture resistant, and while not recommended for 
installations below grade, it is entirely satisfactory 
for on-grade and suspended floors. 

A new Armstrong s Industrial Tile Floor is ready 
for use immediately upon installation. If damaged 
by accident, tiles may be replaced individually. 
Armstrong s Industrial Tile is available in black only 
in blocks 18'' X 24", in gauges of 1/8'' and 3/16". 



Conductive Asphalt Tile 

Armstrong's Conductive Asphalt Tile has been 
developed for use in areas where static electricity 
presents a problem. The high electrical conductivity 
of this flooring material minimizes the danger of 
explosions caused by static electrical discharges. This 
quality makes it especially suitable for hospital oper- 
ating rooms and factory areas where explosion haz- 
ards exist, meeting all requirements of U. S. Gov- 
ernment Safety Bulletins in this respect. 

Armstrong's Conductive Asphalt Tile is otherwise 
similar to Armstiong's Industrial Tile. It is a tough, 
durable resilient tile, with a smooth, nondusting, 
nonsparking surface. It may be installed on sus- 
pended and grade level floors but should not be 
used below grade. Where both grease and static 
electricity are problems, Armstrong's Greaseproof 
Conductive Tile should be used. Both are available 
in 18" x 24" blocks, 1/8" or 3/16" thick in black only.

Jaspe tile is a new Armstrong product 
which combines many of the advantages 
of Armstrong s Jaspe Linoleum with those 
of tile. Jaspe, with its parallel, multi-toned 
striations, can now be had in tile form, 
permitting an entirely new range of dec- 
orative uses for Armstrong's Jaspe. 

Armstrong's Jaspe Tile is produced un- 
der the same rigid manufacturing speci- 
fications which govern Armstrong's Jaspe 
Linoleum. The process changes only at 
the conclusion, when the Jaspe material 
intended for tile is cut into squares. Clean- 
cut edges and square corners both help to 
assure beautiful installations. 

Each of the six new Jaspe tile patterns 
has the Armstrong characteristic of har- 
monizing or contrasting with the other 
colors in the Jaspe line. The tiles are avail- 
able in 9" X 9" squares. Standard Gauge 
(3/32") and have the same Armofelt back- 
ing found on Armstrong's Jaspe Linoleum. 
Armstrong's Jaspe Tile permits installa- 
tions which resemble an expensive cus- 
tom design at a substantially lower cost.

ARMSTRONG'S 
LINOWALL 

1 and 2 yards wide 



Armstrong's Linowall is a smooth-surfaced wall 
covering that has a composition and characteristics 
similar to linoleum. Its surface is sealed effectively 
by a factory process that affords resistance to cook- 
ing greases, splashed water, and dirt smudges. As 
Linowall can be easily cleaned with an application 
of Armstrong's Liquid Cleaner or a mild soap and 
water solution, it's an ideal wall coxering for use 
in home kitchens, nurseries, bathrooms, and above- 
grade laundries. It is also widely used for corridors 
of schools and other public buildings and such places 
as day nurseries and hospitals. 

Though Linowall is reasonable in cost it offers 
several advantages that are not found in more ex- 
pensive materials. Linowall can be formed into seam- 
less inside or outside corners with radii as small as 
%". The color does not wear off as it goes all the 
way through to the backing material. With ordinary 
care and barring unusual accidents, Linowall lasts for 
years and requires no costly refinishing. Installation 
is simple, and walls often need no more preparation 
than that required for paper or paint. 

Linowall is made in twelve marbleized patterns 
and two wood-effect patterns (all are .050" thick). 
Although water resistant, Linowall should not be 
used in shower or tub recesses but is excellent for ad- 
jacent areas. Its fresh fiber Armofelt backing is satu- 
rated with a clear resin that allows easv' cutting and 
does not mar light woodwork during installation.

ARMSTRONG'S 
QUAKER WALL COVERING 



Armstrong's Quaker Wall Covering is a practical, economical product 
with a baked-enamel finish similar to that of Armstrong's Quaker Rugs and 
Floor Covering. It is designed to meet the need for a wall covering material 
that can be offered at low cost yet retain many of the desirable properties of 
higher priced materials. Quaker Wall Covering is suitable where ease of 
cleaning, lasting beauty, and ease of installation are needed. 

Quaker Wall Covering has a flexible, tough felt backing, impregnated 
with a clear resin saturant that does not mar light-colored woodwork during 
installation. It bends around corners easily and is simple to install, Quaker 
Wall Covering can be installed over any smooth, dry, firm wall of plaster, 
hardboard, plywood or gypsum wall board without elaborate and expensive 
preparation. An installation can be completed in the average size room 
in a few hours with a few simple tools. Seams can be made practically 
invisible. Available in a convenient 54" width, Quaker Wall Covering can 
be installed either as a wainscoting or from floor to ceiling. 

Armstrong s Quaker Wall Covering may be used in kitchens, laundries 
above ground level, and in bathrooms, except around built-in showers or 
bathtubs. It is a particularly good choice for kitchens, where walls must be 
resistant to splashed water, smoke, and cooking greases. The tough enamel 
surface and resilient felt backing of Quaker Wall Covering make it ideal 
for rooms where a resilient wall finish is needed that will resist damage 
from ordinary bumps and knocks. In shops and restaurants, where walls 
must be kept clean and sanitary, Armstrong's Quaker Wall Covering is ideal. 

Like Armstrong's Quaker Rugs and Floor Covering, Quaker Wall Cover- 
ing needs only an occasional wiping with a damp cloth to keep it clean 
and sparkling. This minimum care, plus a periodic cleaning with Armstrong's 
Liquid Cleaner or a mild soap and water, is all the maintenance that 
Quaker Wall Covering requires. 

Armstrong's Quaker Wall Covering is offered in six over-all Mello-tone 
Marbelle and three plain tile-type designs, plus a new group of six mar- 
bleized tile patterns. A new nursery pattern has been developed especially 
for children's rooms, kindergartens, and day nurseries. A design to go with 
almost any color scheme can be found in the wide range of colors offered.

ARMSTRONG'S FELT-BASE 
RUGS AND FLOOR COVERING 

Armstrong's Felt-Base Rugs and Floor Covering are characterized by a 
smooth, printed enamel sm'face on a specially made asphalt-saturated felt 
backing. Both rugs and piece goods are available in an exceptionally 
large variety of sizes including Armstrong's popular twelve-foot widths. 



1. STRONG BACKING: At Arm- 
strong's own felt mill, a special 
long fiber felt is made for 
Armstrong's Felt-Base. The long 
fibers give strength, flexibility, 
and smoothness to the felt and 
permit even saturation that im- 
proves quality and appearance. 



2. SMOOTHNESS: Two smooth layers of base 
coat point are first applied to the saturated 
felt and then a final prime coot. This prime 
coat fills even the tiniest pores in the base 
coating. Enamel paints applied over this primer 
form the remarkably smooth surface which 
distinguishes all Armstrong's Felt-Base. 




9. LONG WEAR: Armstrong's Felt-Base is 
baked in huge stoves. As the specially for- 
mulated point dries, it forms the long-wear- 
ing surface of this low-cost floor covering. 



148 



3. BRIGHT COLORS: An entirely new 
enamel paint developed by Armstrong 
chemists keeps the full brilliance and true 
colors of the high quality pigments used. 
The true colors last the life of the pattern. 



5. FLEXIBLE ENAMEL SURFACE: The enamel paint made by 
Armstrong for Quaker and Standard Felt-Base is unusually 
flexible to assure a surface that will stand hard service. 



4. ALKALI RESISTANCE: The newly developed 
paint has outstanding resistance to alkali, 
which gives Armstrong's Quaker Rugs and 
Floor Covering extra protection against fad- 
ing caused by soap-and-water cleaning. 



6. CLEAR-CUT DESIGN: Artists create the beau- 
tiful designs for Armstrong's rugs and piece 
goods. Craftsmen prepare a print block for each 
color in the design. The long printing machine 
then reproduces the design on the felt-base with 
great precision, resulting in the clear-cut pat- 
terns for which Armstrong's Felt-Base is noted. 




Ei 



8. TWELVE FOOT WIDTHS: Armstrong's specially 
built felt-making and printing machines make 
possible the popular 12 x 12 and 12 x 15 
foot rug sires and 1 2 foot wide floor cover- 
ing. These broader widths eliminate seams. 



7. WIDE VARIETY OF COLORS AND PAT- 
TERNS: A separate print block adds each 
individual color in the pattern as the felt 
moves across the printing machine. Up to 
24 blocks may be used on any one Arm^ 
strong's Felt-Base pattern. This allows al- 
most unlimited color and pattern variety.

In Armstrong's Quaker Passage Covering, appearance and ease 
of maintenance have been combined in a low-cost flooring mate- 
rial developed especially for halls and passageways. Tough, oven- 
baked enamel gives the material a smooth, glistening finish that 
will stay clean and attractive with only a minimum amount of 
care. Armstrong s Quaker Passage Covering is produced under 
rigid and consistent standards of quality. The enamel surface is 
backed by the same durable felt that is used in the manufacture 
of Armstrong s Quaker Rugs and Floor Covering. This specially 
processed felt features Armstrong's patented Safety-Back, which 
permits the material, if cemented to the floor, to be removed 
without damaging the wood subfloor. The colors of Armstrong's 
Quaker Passage Covering are combined to produce patterns 
which will harmonize with a variety of interior color schemes.

ARMSTRONG'S SUNDRIES 

The Armstrong Line of sundries includes materials and tools for the installa- 
tion and maintenance of resilient floors and wall coverings. Each item has been 
designed to meet a specific need and to fill it with the greatest degree of effici- 
ency and dependability. Years of experience plus laboratory and field research 
have aided in the development of this group of fine quality materials. They are 
so well suited for use with the various Armstrong Floor and Wall products that 
they materially aid proper installation and maintenance. Thus they simplify 
working methods while helping to assure lasting good service. 

A merchant who uses and sells these Armstrong materials concentrates in one 
company the responsibihty for all of the products in a floor and wall covering 
installation. In addition, he is assured that each sundry material will measure 
up to the high standard of quality maintained for the Armstrong Line. 



Armstrong's Linogloss Wax 

Armstrong's Linogloss Wax is a liquid, self -polishing 
wax which can be safely used on all resilient floors, wood- 
work, painted surfaces, and wood floors. Made with car- 
nauba, the highest quality raw wax known, Linogloss is 
scientifically blended to spread in a smooth, even coat. 

The process of waxing floors with Armstrong's Linogloss 
Wax is exceptionally fast and simple. Either a soft cloth 
or an Armstrong's Wax Applicator may be used to spread 
a thin coat of wax over the floor. The colorless wax dries 
thoroughly in about twenty to thirty minutes. The lustrous 
surface needs no polishing, although a higher gloss may 
be obtained by buffing with a weighted cloth or polisher. 
When re-waxing floor surfaces, old wax need not be re- 
moved unless soiled or dark in color before a new coat of 
Linogloss Wax can be applied. 

The protection Linogloss Wax gives to the surface of 
any resilient floor adds materially to its life. The hard, 
smooth finish obtained by Linogloss Wax is unusually re- 
sistant to water spotting and will not chip or craze. Only 
simple buffing by hand is necessary to remove ordinary 
traffic marks. Linogloss Wax is odorless when dry. The 
mild and pleasant odor lasts only while the wax is drying. 

One gallon of Linogloss Wax will give a protective 
coating to a floor area of 2000 to 3000 square feet, making 
it an economical as well as an efficient maintenance sundry. 

Lasting beauty in any floor comes through a proper and 
regular maintenance routine. The use of Armstrong's Lino- 
gloss Wax assures long-lasting beauty and a sparkling sur- 
face for all types of Armstrong's Resilient Floors.

Armstrong's Liquid Cleaner 

Armstrong's Liquid Cleaner is a high quality product that is recom- 
mended for cleaning all resilient floor coverings, except asphalt tile and 
rubber tile. It is also suggested for use on painted walls, woodwork, and 
furniture. Although it is mild, Armstrong's Liquid Cleaner does its work 
quickly and thoroughly. 

Armstrong's Liquid Cleaner is easy to use; the penetrating action of 
the cleaner loosens dirt without the necessity of hard scrubbing. Only a 
small amount, mixed with water, is needed to remove the dirt that accu- 
mulates under normal use. A stronger solution may be used for remov- 
ing stubborn traffic marks or excessive dirt without any danger of injury 
to the flooring material. The use of Armstrong s Liquid Cleaner assures 
a fast, easy care routine without sacrificing either economy or efficiency. 





No. S-73 Sweeping 
Compound. Keeps dust 
down when sweeping. 
Safe for all floors. 



No. S-74 Cleaning 
Powder. For cleaning 
asphalt tile and rub- 
ber tile. Easy to use. 





Armstrong's Furniture Rests 

Armstrongs Furniture Rests are highly recommended 
for use on resifient floors, wood floors, and carpets. They 
provide protection from indentation marks caused by the 
weight of even the heaviest pieces of furniture. Four styles 
and thirteen sizes are available in a rich shade of brown 
that harmonizes with furniture finishes. Made of tough, 
high quality plastic, these rests offer many advantages. All 
have broad, flat surfaces which distribute the weight over 
a larger area. The cotter type rest is for use on furniture 
which has already been drilled for casters; the nail type can 
be used on furniture with solid legs. Both have the exclu- 
sive Armstrong ball and socket swivel construction that 
keeps the rest flat if furniture is tipped. The round and 
square cups are for use with larger pieces of furniture and 
heavy appliances which are not frequently moved. 



Armstrong's Linogloss 
Wax Applicator with soft 
lamb's wool head is now 
offered in a new, simplified 
model. Lamb's wool head 
on the new model is easily 
removed for cleaning. 
Handle is set at an angle 
which makes faster and 
easier waxing possible. 
Wax Applicator is made in 
two convenient sizes: No. 
S-60 with 9-inch head and 
No. S-61 with 6-inch head, 
both with 42-inch handles. 
Eliminates the bending and

General 

INFORMATION 



COLOR SCHEME 
SUGGESTIONS 



A definite color plan for each room in the house is 
a fundamental of good decoration. Each room should 
have a planned relationship between the colors of the 
floors, walls, and furnishings. For best results a color 
plan should be worked out before any actual decorat- 
ing is started. To simplify this task, Armstrong s Bu- 
reau of Interior Decoration has developed a number 
of color schemes suitable for use with the various pat- 
terns of Armstrong s Linoleum. Prepared by skilled 
decorators under the guidance of Hazel Dell Brown, 
head of Armstrong's Bureau of Interior Decoration, 
all of these schemes include colors for the wall, drap- 
ery, and fabric materials. To plan a room around an 
Armstrong Floor, all that is necessary is to refer to 
the color schemes listed by number under each pat- 
tern. From these different suggestions, a selection of 
the most appealing plan can then be made. In these 
recommendations, descriptions of such things as wall 
paper, curtains, and upholstery are necessarily brief 
and require broad interpretation.

INSTALLATION OF LINOLEUM 



In order to give completely satisfactory service, 
linoleum must be properly installed according to fac- 
tory specifications. Generally speaking, the service- 
ability of any linoleum installation depends not only 
on the quality of the Hnoleum but also on the quality 
of (1) the underlying subfloor, (2) the workmanship 
employed, and (3) the care the floor receives after 
installation. The following paragraphs give a brief 
description of the major steps involved in a linoleum 
installation. However, this limited information should 
not be considered as a substitute for complete instruc- 
tions and specifications. 



Subfloors 

Linoleum can be installed over just about any type 
of subfloor— wood, concrete, terrazzo, tile, metal, or 
marble— but only if the subfloor is suspended. It 
should never be laid over any subfloor that is in direct 
contact with the ground, either on or below grade. 

This is because the moisture that is always present 
in such subfloors, even though they feel dry to the touch, 
may destroy the linoleum paste and eventually ruin 
the linoleum. The type and condition of the subfloor 
determine, to a large extent, what should be done. 

The surface of the subfloor must be perfectly smooth 
and firm and completely free from all dirt, oil, paint, 




In preparing wood subfloors, all high spots should be sanded down or 

planed as shown above. Loose boards should be renailed and the nails 

countersunk to prevent them from showing through the finished floor. 

and varnish. Smoothness is necessary to prevent ac- 
celerated wear of the linoleum over high spots while 
cleanliness is necessary to insure that the hnoleum 
bonds firmly to the subfloor at all points. 

Most linoleum is laid over wood subfloors. These 
should be of double-layer construction .with the top 




Pictured above is a cutaway view showing the construction for an ideal 
linoleum installation. The top layer of the subfloor is formed from tongue- 
and-groove boards running at right angles to the bottom layer. Liniug felt 
and linoleum are installed with the main seams running at right angles to 
the tongue-and-groove boards of the top layer of the subfloor. 



layer consisting of tongue-and-groove boards not more 
than 3 inches wide. If the floor is of only single-layer 
construction or if the top layer does not meet these 
specifications, then a layer of plywood or hardboard 
should be added before the linoleum is installed. 

This extra layer should be nailed in place with 
galvanized or cement-coated nails spaced no more 
than six inches apart over the entire surface. 

If the floor is of double-layer construction, it should 
be checked for firmness and all loose boards nailed 
down tightly. At the same time all cracks and holes 
should be plugged with tightly fitting pieces of wood 
or filled with plastic wood. Then, if the surface is com- 
pletely free from dirt, oil, paint, and varnish, it is 
ready for the installation of linoleum. 

When it is necessary to sand or plane old floors to 
remove rough spots, oil, or old paint or varnish or 
when linoleum is being installed over new floor boards, 
the surface should be treated with a coat of Arm- 
strong's No. S-140 Floor and Wall Size before the in- 
stallation is made. This prevents the boards from ab- 
sorbing excessive moisture from the paste and swelling 
or cupping after the linoleum is in place. This swelling 
or cupping would show through the surface of the 
goods and tend to hasten wear of the raised portions. 

If the subfloor is concrete or any other material but 
wood, the same care must be taken to make sure that 
it is smooth and clean. Paint, varnish, oil, and wax 
should be removed completely; cracks should be filled 
with Armstrong's No. S-190 Crack Filler; and uneven 
places should be leveled with a floor fill. Finally, the 
entire surface must be cleaned and allowed to dry. 



250 



Lining Felt 

Lining felt is used between linoleum and the sub- 
floor (1) to reduce strain on the linoleum caused by 
seasonal shrinkage and expansion of the subfloor and 
(2) to make the finished floor smoother and more quiet. 
With subfloors other than wood, its use is optional. 
With wood subfloors, its necessity depends on the 
type of backing on the hnoleum being installed. It is 
required if the linoleum has a burlap back but is gen- 
erally regarded as optional if the linoleum has a 
"Safety-Back" or "Armofelt Back." 

When used with lighter gauges of linoleum, lining 
felt makes a smooth floor but one that is somewhat 
susceptible to indentation. Consequently, furniture 
rests should always be used with such a floor. 

If lining felt is being used, it should be cut to fit 
closeh^ and smoothly and pasted firmly to the subfloor 
with Armstrong s No. S-128 Paste. 

Installation 

After the subfloor has been prepared and the lining 
felt, if used, pasted down, the actual installation of the 
Hnoleum consists of several skilled operations— cut- 
ting the six-foot-wide sections to fit the room; match- 
ing adjoining pieces so that the pattern repeat is 
maintained; and cutting tight, invisible seams. 

Around the walls, the linoleum is cut to fit either 
by knifing— cutting away small sections of excess mate- 
rial with a sharp knife— or by scribing— transferring 




Here is how a mechanic uses dividers to scribe along an irregular wall. 
After the hnoleum is cut along the scribed line, it will fit snugly in place, 

wall irregularities onto the goods with dividers or a 
special tool and then cutting along this line. (See 
illustration.) Both of these methods are used at one 
time or another in almost every installation. 

Pattern matching is not necessary with Plain lino- 
leum. With Marbelle and Jaspe Linoleum there are no 
actual patterns to match, but adjoining pieces should 
be turned end-for-end to produce the best-appearing 



and least obvious seams. Embossed Inlaid and Straight 
Line Inlaid Linoleum have distinct pattern repeats 
which must be matched perfectly at the seams or the 
over-all floor loses much of its effect. 

Seams in Plain, Marbelle, and Jaspe Linoleum are 
cut by overlapping adjoining pieces sHghtly and then 
cutting through both pieces of material using a steel 
straightedge as a guide for the knife. In cutting seams 
in pattern goods, the edge of one section is straight- 
edged first. Then the adjoining section is placed prop- 
erly to preserve the pattern lines, and the seam is cut 




Seams in plain, jaspe, and Marbelle patterns are made by using a steel 
straightedge as a guide as shown above. The cut is made through the 
overlap of adjoining pieces. Alternating strips of jaspe and Marbelle lino- 
leum should be turned end-for-end to make the best appearing seams. 

using the previously cut edge as a guide for the knife. 

After the linoleum has been fitted, it is pasted down 
and rolled with a 100-lb. roller to eliminate air pockets 
and assure a tight bond with the subfloor. 

A special installation feature that can be included 
with any linoleum floor is a cove base treatment which 
curves the hnoleum a few inches up walls and perma- 
nent fixtures. This curved surface provides a neat ap- 
pearance and eliminates the hard-to-clean right angle 
joining between floor and wall. A floor-wall curve can 
also be provided by Armstrong s Top-Set Asphalt Cove 
Base which replaces the conventional baseboard. 




Pattern matching at seams is extremely important. When pattern goods 

are laid so that repeats do not fall opposite each other, left above, effect 

of design is destroyed. But when repeats in the pattern fall opposite each 

other, as at right above, the design forms a single unit. 



251 




INSTALLATION OF RESILIENT TILE 



Because resilient tile floors are installed one tile 
at a time, they lend themselves readily to custom de- 
sign treatments. Basically, all types of resilient tile 
are installed in the same manner, the principal dif- 
ferences in installation arising during the preparation 
of the subfloor before the tile is laid. 



Subfl< 



loors 

Like linoleum, resilient tiles can be installed over 
just about any kind of subfloor— wood, concrete, tile, 
metal, marble, or terrazzo. When the subfloor is in 
direct contact with the ground, either on grade 
or below grade, Linotile, rubber tile, cork tile, 
and linoleum tile should never be installed because 
these materials are all harmed by the alkaline mois- 
ture present in the subfloor. Only asphalt tile is rec- 
ommended for such areas. 




Cracks in concrete subfloors must be filled with crack filler before tile is 

installed. This is done by mixing the dry crack filler with water in a 

shallow pan and then applying it with a putty knife. 

Wood subfloors for resilient tiles are prepared ex- 
actly as they would be for the installation of linoleum. 
Double-layer construction of tongue-and-groove floor- 
ing is preferred, and if this is not present the floor 
must be covered with plywood or hardboard before 
the tile is installed. Lining felt should be used with all 
resilient tiles installed over a wood subfloor. 

On-grade and below-grade subfloors over which 
asphalt tile is installed are usually concrete though 
occasionally marble or terrazzo is encountered. As- 
phalt tile is not harmed by the alkaline moisture 
brought to the surface of these subfloors by capillarity, 
but it can not be installed satisfactorily unless the 
floor is dry. After the floor has been cleaned of dirt, 
oil, and paint and all rough spots have been leveled 




This test for dampness is made before installing hnolcum, Linotile, cork 

tile, rubber tile, or linoleum tile over a new suspended concrete subHoor. 

The holes are drilled to allow moisture, if present, to rise faster. 

and cracks filled, it should be tested for dryness by 
spreading several patches of Armstrong's No. S-80 
Asphalt Primer. If, at the end of 24 hours, this primer 
does not peel off when scraped with a putty knife, 
the floor is dry enough for the installation. If the 
primer does peel off, the room will have to be dried 
by heat or better ventilation before the installation. 

Asphalt tile can be installed on above-grade con- 
crete subfloors as soon as the concrete is hard enough 
to walk on. Linotile, rubber tile, cork tile, and lino- 
leum tile, however, can not be installed on such sub- 
floors until the concrete is thoroughly dry. 

To see if a suspended concrete subfloor is dry 
enough for the installation of one of these types of tile, 
a calcium chloride test for moisture is used as illus- 
trated above. In this test a teaspoonful of calcium 
chloride is placed in a watch crystal which is set on the 
floor inside a ring of putty. A piece of glass is placed 
over the putty to keep out air. If the concrete is still 
damp, beads of moisture will appear on the cover glass 




Cement is spread with a notched trowel so that it is evenly distributed. 
Here the mechanic has poured a quantity of Armstrong's No. S-90 As- 
phalt Cement on the floor and is just starting to spread it. 



252 



in from 24 to 48 hours and the calcium chloride will 
be dissolved. If this does not happen, the floor is dry 
enough for the installation. 

Before the actual installation is started, on-grade 
and below-grade concrete subfloors should be primed 
with Armstrong's No. S-80 Asphalt Primer and new 
or freshly sanded wood subfloors should be sized with 
Armstrong's No. S-140 Floor and Wall Size. 

Installation 

The first step in the installation of any type of re- 
silient tile is to find the exact center of the room and 
divide the floor into quarters. This is done by locat- 
ing the center of each wall and snapping chalk lines 
connecting the opposite center points. The spot where 
the two chalk lines cross is the middle of the room. 
If the room is odd shaped or has irregular bays, they 
are ignored in making these measurements. 

Starting at the center of the room, a row of unce- 
mented tiles is placed along one of the chalk lines until 
it reaches the wall. The edge of the tiles should be 
exactly on the line. Then a row of tiles is placed along 
the other line. This test placement shows exactly how 
the tiles will fit into the room and may indicate that 
one or both lines will have to be moved half a tile's 
width one way or the other to balance the tile along 
the wall line. If so, new chalk lines are made in the 
proper position. When the placement makes the floor 
look as desired, the loose tiles are removed. 

With a notched trowel, adhesive is spread thinly 
and evenly over one quarter of the room. While this is 
being done, portions of the chalk lines are left exposed 
to serve as a guide for snapping new lines. After the 
adhesive is spread, these lines are snapped. Asphalt 
tile adhesives are allowed to set up about half an hour 
or until they become tacky. All other types of tile are 
installed as soon as the adhesive is spread. 

The first tile is placed carefully in the angle formed 
by the chalk lines at the center of the room or at the 




The best way to cut asphalt tile along an irregular line is to heat the 
tile with a blowtorch and then cut it with a linoleinu knife. Here a piece 
of border material has been heated and is being cut to fit in a doorway. 

point determined by the test placement. Then addi- 
tional tiles are laid with their edges flush against 
the chalk line to keep the pattern square. The area 
between the chalk lines is filled in with tiles as the 
mechanic goes along. In placing the tiles, they are 
butted tightly, but care is taken not to slide them into 
place because this would force adhesive up between 
the blocks. If adhesive gets on the surface of the tile, 
it is removed at once before it can harden. 

At the edge of the room each border tile must be 
cut to fit snugly against the wall. All types of tile but 
asphalt tile can be cut with a regular linoleum knife. 
Straight cuts in asphalt tile are made by scoring the 
tile with a knife or a sharp point and then snapping it. 
Curved or irregular cuts are made by heating the back 
of the tile with a blowtorch and then cutting it with 
a linoleum knife while it is soft and phable. 

After the first quarter of the room is completely 
covered with tile, adhesive is spread on a second quar- 
ter and installation proceeds in exactly the same man- 
ner. The third and fourth quarters are then done in 
the same way. All tiles but asphalt tile should be rolled 
as soon as the area is completed. 





Here the room has been laid out into quarters, asphalt cement has been 
spread over one quarter, and the mechanic is starting the installation. 



Linotile, like linoleum, is cut to irregular contours with a linoleum knife. 
Above a mechanic is cutting a piece of tile to fit around a toilet bowl.

ESTIMATING RESILIENT TILE FLOORS 



There are several methods for estimating the cost 
and amount of material required for a resihent tile 
floor. Some of these methods are complex and some 
are relatively easy. The following method, which is 
quick and simple but accurate enough for general esti- 
mating purposes, requires only basic arithmetic. In the 
operation of this method, the square foot area of the 
room is determined and a percentage figure, which 
varies with the size of the room, is added to account 
for waste. This figure, which represents the tile re- 
quired, is then multiplied by the price per square foot 
of the tile and the cost of sundries is added. 

Determining Area 

The square foot area of the room is found easily 
by multiplying the length in feet by the width in feet. 
To this figure, add the square footage of any offsets in 
the room and deduct the square footage of any wall 
projections that extend into the floor area. In making 
your measurements, all four walls should be figured 
because rooms are seldom square. For example, the 
width of a room may be 21' 4'' at one end but only 
20' 9" at the other. For estimating purposes, an aver- 
age of the two dimensions may be taken. 

After the exact area has been determined, additional 
material must be included to allow for waste which 
invariably occurs when the pieces of tile are cut to 
fit accurately along the walls. Since there are more 
border tiles in proportion to field tiles in a small room 
than there are in a larger one, a greater percentage 
of waste must be figured for small rooms. The general 
outline of the room should also be taken into account 
when the amount of waste is being figured. For ex- 
ample, walls that are straight, without offsets, involve 
a minimum of waste. On the other hand, doorways and 
irregular walls can cause considerable waste. The 
table below will serve as a fairly accurate guide in 
estimating waste for rooms of various sizes. 



Table of Approximate Percentages of 
Allowable Waste for Various Areas 

Up to 50 sq. ft 14 % 

50 to 100 sq. ft 10 % 

100 to 200 sq. ft 7 % to 9% 

200 to 300 sq. ft 6 % to 7% 

300 to 1,000 sq. ft 4 % to 6% 

1,000 to 5,000 sq. ft 4 % 

5,000 to 10,000 sq. ft 3 % to 4% 

10,000 and up IVz^ to 3% 



Cost of Materials 

Price figuring is easy for materials such as Linotile 
and Jaspe Tile which have only one price per 
square foot regardless of color to be installed. For 
these materials it is necessary only to multiply the 
number of square feet, including waste, that you have 
determined are required for the room by the price per 
square foot of the material. 

For materials priced according to choice of color, 
however, the job is a little more complicated. Asphalt 
tile, for example, is priced in A, B, C, and D color 
groups. In a great many jobs, the colors required for 
the design to be installed will come from two or more 
of these price groups. The figuring of a price for an 
installation of this nature is illustrated below. 

When border is included as part of a resilient tile 
installation, the border area should be deducted from 



B-519 
(507o) 



C-3Z2 
(257o) 




D-342 
(25%) 

The repeat unit of this three-color field design shows that 50Cr of the 
asphalt tile is a B color, 25% a C color, and 25% a D color. Thus, 
50% of the entire field area is figured at the group B price, 25% at the 
group C price, and 25% at the group D price. The three figures are 
added together to determine the total cost of the flooring material. 



the total area and its price estimated separately. De- 
pending on the width of the border, considerable 
waste may be encountered during fittings to the wall. 

Cost of Sundries 

The cost of adhesives for a resilient tile installation 
is estimated by dividing the square foot area of the 
room (the actual area, not the area plus waste figure 
used for estimating tile costs) by the covering capacity 
in square feet per gallon of the adhesive being used. 
This gives the number of gallons of adhesive required. 

The number of rolls of lining felt required for an 
installation is figured by dividing the number of square 
feet in the room by the number of square feet in a roll 
of felt. This number of rolls is then multiplied by the 
cost per roll to get the estimated cost.

INSTALLATION OF WALL COVERINGS 



I 



The installation of Armstrong's Linowall and Arm- 
strong's Quaker Wall Covering involves many of the 
same problems encountered in the installation of lino- 
leum and the resihent tiles. Walls under these mate- 
rials, like the subfloors under resilient flooring mate- 
rials, must be smooth, firm, and in generally good 
condition. Like Hnoleum, Linowall and Quaker Wall 
Covering are installed in large sections. 

Both Linowall and Quaker Wall Covering can be 
installed over firm plaster and several types of wall- 
board. Quaker Wall Covering can be installed over 
oil paints and enamels that are in good condition. 
Neither material can be installed over loose plaster, 
fibrous wallboards, wood, wallpaper, canvas, or water 
paint. Old plaster is a satisfactory base if loose spots 
are removed and all cracks, chips, and holes are 
filled and properly leveled with patching plaster. 

The surface of both old and new plaster should 
be given a brush coating of Armstrong's No. S-140 




In installing wall covering material to wainscot height, the area to be 

covered by the fiist piece of material is spread with adhesive from the 

baseboard to a line marked on the wall at the wainscot height. 

Floor and Wall Size before wall covering is installed. 
If Quaker Wall Covering is to be installed over oil 
paint or enamel, the surface should be scratched with 
a coarse grade of sandpaper. 

Both Linowall and Quaker Wall Covering can be 
curved around inside and outside corners without the 
use of vertical molding strips, provided the radius of 
the curve is at least %". The rounding of these corners 
is one of the most important steps in the preparation 
of the wall to receive the wall covering. 

The first step in installation is to cut the wall cover- 
ing into convenient size pieces for easy handling. Then 
the wall area to be covered by the first piece should 
be coated with adhesive and the section of wall cov- 




Seams in tile patterns are made using previously cut mortar edge as a 

guide, above left. In the marbleized material, right, seams are cut through 

both pieces at center of overlapping section. 

ering unrolled onto the wall in its proper position. 
During this operation, the material should be smoothed 
into place with the hands, working from the center 
toward the edges to press out any air bubbles. 

The second piece should be installed so that the 
first piece overlaps it shghtly to aid in cutting the 
seam. For cutting seams in tile patterns, the first 
section should end with a complete tile and the ad- 
joining mortar line. This edge is used to guide the 
knife during the cutting of the under section. Seams 
in marbleized patterns are cut by lapping one inch 
of the first piece over the second piece and cutting 
through both pieces at the center of the overlap. 

When Linowall or Quaker Wall Covering is in- 
stalled to wainscot height, the top edge can be fin- 
ished in several different ways. One of the best is to 
apply Armstrong s No. S-16 Beveled Cap Strip. 




During installation wall covering is rolled onto the wall in its proper 
position and smoothed with the hands to press out bubbles and air j)ockets 
and provide a firm bond between the wall covering and the wall.

HOW TO USE THE ESTIMATING TABLE 




In order to use the Estimating Table (shown on facing page), 
it is advisable to employ a square cut from cardboard or other 
heavy paper SV^" x 10%", Make a dotted line about VA" from 
the edge along two adjacent sides of this cardboard sheet; then 
cut along this line (see illustration above). The L-shaped piece 
will provide a square adequate for use with the chart. 

In estimating the yardage of linoleum required by a room of 
a given dimension, the two inside edges of the square are 




placed on the chart along the lines indicating the length and 
width. If, for examj^le, the room is 13' wide x 14' long, the 
square is placed as shown above. The figure which shows in 
the angle of the square indicates the number of square yards 
required— 22.2. In addition, the area framed by the square con- 
stitutes an actual layout of the room, showing direction of the 
material, number of 6' widths, plus number of seams required. 
For fuller explanation of chart itself, see next page.

X X X XX XX XX 



This Estimating Table shows room areas in square yards and 
also shows to scale exactly where seams will fall. The heavy 
lines on the chart represent seams, and the space between them 
is equal to one 6' width of linoleum. To allow for any variation 
in the wall and to provide sufficient material for scribing, the 
yardage figure in each square includes an extra 3" on the 
length of each piece. 

Furthermore, because the yardage required for any particu- 
lar room may vary according to the way in which the material is 
placed, it is advisable to check the yardage both ways. For ex- 
ample, a room lO'-O" wide by 17'-6" long will require two 
pieces 6-0" wide by 17'-6" long or 23.7 square yards if the 
material is laid the length of the room. But if the material is 
laid the width of the room, three pieces 6'-0" wide by 10'-3" 
long or 20.5 square yards will be required. 

The yardages shown on this table are based on installing the 



material without seams when the final width is more than 3'. 
If it is desirable to avoid cross seams when the final width is 3' 
or less, the yardage figure at the next 6' width on the chart 
should be read. If cross seams are acceptable, however, when 
the final width is 3' or less, the yardage shown in those columns 
marked X (for final widths of more than 18" and up to and in- 
cluding 3') are based on one cross seam. Similarly, the yardages 
marked XX (for final widths of 18" or less) are based on two 
cross seams. 

This chart applies only to patterns which have no matching 
repeat; namely. Plains, Jaspes, Marbelles. 

X— Yardage based on one cross seam for final widths of more than 18" 
and up to and including 3'. 

XX— Yardage based on two cross seams for final width of 18" or less. 

NOTE: When cross seams are to be avoided altogether in the final 
width, read the yardage figure at the next 6' width on the chart.
